1.1 Co-designed Local Community Peace Action Plans
PEACEPLUS Local Community Action Plans: Action Plans will be produced for each of the 17 local authority areas across the Programme Area. These will be designed to complement the community planning structures introduced across the Programme Area.
This area of the Programme will enable and empower local community partnerships to self-determine and deliver priority projects on a cross-community basis; which will result in improved, shared and inclusive local services, facilities and spaces; and make a significant and lasting contribution to peace and reconciliation.
This was a closed workshop held for the 17 local authorities across the programme area.
It will result in the development of PEACEPLUS Action Plans which benefit the Programme Area as follows:
• The creation of sustainable, inclusive and cross-community partnerships, which will make a significant contribution to the community planning process and peacebuilding in the Programme Area;
• Community ownership of the PEACEPLUS Action Plans and ongoing engagement throughout their delivery;
• The management of significant and sustained cross-community collaboration at the local level to deliver established development priorities;
• The inclusion of all local areas across the Programme Area, including those who may not previously have participated within PEACE Programme activities
